Description

Remarkable NWA 11228 lunar meteorite, discovered in 2017 in Northwest Africa; it is given a number, “11228,” because the exact location of the find was not recorded. It is a feldspathic breccia and has been officially and unequivocally identified as a lunar meteorite by Dr. Carl Agee at the Institute of Meteoritics at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque. Lunar meteorites are known to be from the moon because of their close geologic match to Apollo return samples. As actual pieces of the moon, lunar meteorites are among the rarest materials on Earth, and such large, complete examples are of the utmost rarity.
